Apparently, Trypticon's "emergency space station" alt mode looks like the Decepticon Space Station seen in Spotlight: Sixshot (check out page 3 of "A Tale of Two City-Bots for more details).

Optimus Prime has issues about exiling mechs in dimensional prison, as seen in Spotlight: Optimus Prime.

Scamper, Six-Gun and Slammer are the names of G1 Metroplex' partners: Scamper turns into a car, Six-Gun is the combined form of Metroplex' weapons, and Slammer is actually just a small tank.
His robot mode was never seen in the official continuity (as far as we know!).

See the lineart for Slammer's transformation sequence by Joe Teanby.

More about Scamper, Six-Gun, Slammer and their life inside Metroplex in The Transmogrification Occurrence.

The Decepticon Siege Mode Bunker was first seen in Infiltration #2

Varas Centralus was first featured in Stormbringer #2

It's not by chance that Fortress Maximus has a project for rebuilding Nebulos-- and that the project is named "Rebirth!.

Scorponok was first seen in Spotlight: Ultra Magnus and then defeated and captured in Maximum Dinobots.

Learn more about Fortress Maximus' plans in Short Story: The Once And Future King.

More about Scamper and his teammates in the Metroplex Team bios, from Scamper (robot mode) to their ultimate combined modes (coming soon).

poor Metroplex. Hide him in inhabitable solar system. At least, he is not alone.

You've given a great purpose to Metroplex's mini bots.
Hope to see some more of them. Slammers bot mode is very cool!
